​White House Hotline

< Denis.McDonough@va.gov >


Yes, this really works. No, it doesn't ring in the White House. The email address and phone number are staffed by a seemingly serious group of players, many who are veterans, and if you have a legit issue, telling these folks is like bringing in the artillery. Let's prepare  for your call or email. Make some notes before you proceed so you don't forget anything. I prefer email since there's no waiting for someone to answer and I can take my time to prepare the story in just the right detail. Be sure to include your DOB, your last 4, contact info...a couple of numbers, your preferred email and such. Describe the problem as briefly as you can.  Less is more.  Include the necessary components but don't tell your life story.  Don't rant.  Be polite...military courtesy will get you places that hollering  IN ALL CAPS  won't.  Respect!  Don't waste their time with bogus complaints about your feelings being hurt. If you appropriately utilize this service, I'll vouch that this works like a champ. Tell them you read about this at The VAWatchdog Dot Org...they know who we are.

You quit when the gorilla is tired."  —  Robert Straus

Follow me. Anyone who spent any time at Ft. Benning knows that battle cry. When the going gets tough, you need to get behind someone who has experience and a plan. When you deal with your VA benefits there are dozens, maybe hundreds of resources on the Internet, usually way too complex to read or they want your money to open their secrets...how do you choose where to take advice and council?  I think I have the answer. When you want to deal with your VA, whether you're filing a claim or trying to get along with your health care providers, you need to hear the voice of a veteran who actually uses the VA. I'm in the process of providing that resource for you...for free. No sign-up, no registration, instant access to reliable information. It's your VA, use it effectively.

Follow me as I publish   Jim’s Everyday Guide to Veterans Benefits.
